UFV's Agriculture Centre
UFV's brand new Agriculture Centre of Excellence facility was officially opened on April 4, 2014, at the Chilliwack campus at Canada Education Park.
The Agriculture Centre of Excellence features:
- A 783 m2 barn including livestock area, milking area, poultry area, and swine area.
- A 600 m2 greenhouse with a multi-wall polycarbonate construction that provides a strong thermal rating and high energy efficiency. The greenhouse is the tallest in North America (12m), which allows it to retain the CO2 rather than venting it as excess heat.
- 2 x 225 m2 polyethene greenhouses.
